the ugly side of boutiques

why is all this stuff so expensive?
I could make this at home!!!

well my dear you go on!!
I don't make anything that takes much skill.
However, there are consequences.....

materials for sign - who knows at this point
time invested - a lot
same mess - different night
dollar value to me - one thousand dollars
since I have no chance of getting that dollar amount, whatever price I mark it as will be a bargain !!

you sound frustrated. Are you frustrated? It looks absolutely beautiful. Except jocies face that is just pathetic. at least she found a few dozen purses.
Just keep weeding, just keep weeding!
I do not have any illusions to think that I could make any of that at home. unless I was at your home!

no not frustrated with actually getting to create things... just the last 4 or 5 pictures have been a little much. at least she's in bed so i can start cleaning up.

which freezer did i put the ice cream in? (i weigh 130 pounds and can eat anything i want and stay my perfect weight. - i'm chanting that on the way to the freezer.)

Oh my gosh! Jocie and ALL of that . . . well, stuff. She REALLY needs to come and hang out with Bryton. Those two would get along great walking around with their contraptions and whatever other CRAP, I mean treasures that they can find. Seriously, I don't get it. Oh, and Jen . . . I wish that I could tell you that Nienie and I are like BFF, but that's not the case. I wrote to her about Mac's and then she wrote back and the rest is history. LOVE the boards by the way!

Monika said...

Oh, and your new jpg's! I love your sense of humor!

Bryton is going to be homeless when he grows up too? We really should get them together, they can stratigize the ins and out of crap carrying.

WOW. I never realized what goes into that stuff... wait, I do. Kids are tough to love sometimes, as you well know. That's why I'm considering turning the doorknob around on the kids' room with the lock on the outside... Then my vinyl career can take off... wait, oh nevermind!

That is some cute stuff!!!

I didn't know you were so "artsy".

The "I Feel Wicked" plate is my absolute favorite!

Yeah, he really takes to other people's junk. Literally . . . he goes through the trash. (Does Jocie do that?) He gets so pissed when he finds his "old junk" in the trash. I don't know how in the world it gets in there. At least, that's what I have to tell him in order for our house to maintain its ONE step away from becoming an indoor junk yard. Maybe we should take advantage while their young and let 'em run with ALL of the crap that they want. It's a lot cheaper that way.

no trash, she's totally OCD about a clean cluttered environment!
